Crap From The Past - June 22, 2007: Party Like It's 1979: An aircheck of New York's No. 1 radio station, Disco 92KTU (92.3 WKTU-FM/New York) from February 24, 1979


Published June 22, 2007


A pop music radio show for people who already know plenty about pop music, hosted by Ron "Boogiemonster" Gerber and heard every Friday night from 10:30 to midnight on KFAI-FM, 90.3 FM Minneapolis, 106.7 FM St. Paul, and KFAI.org.


Notes

Here is a listing of all shows saved to date and a listing of all the playlists to date.

This week's show is an un-telescoped aircheck of 92.3 WKTU-FM (Disco 92 KTU)/New York City, recorded off air onto a Memorex MRX2 Oxide 120-minute cassette. Cassette supplied by Debbie S. of Austin, TX. Transferred to the digital domain by Ron Gerber, May 2007. Pitch corrected, no noise reduction used. It's remarkable that the tape survived as long as it had, and it was in pretty bad shape in places.

The actual Crap From The Past episode featured the first 90 minutes of this aircheck.

The two-hour block of audio featured here was originally submitted in two pieces. Those original two pieces, along with a time coded music log, are found here. The music logs are reprinted below for convenience.
